Every Record I Own – F is for Fairport Convention – Full House

Fairport Convention ‎– Full House

fullhouse Dim recollection of this being played a lot when we lived in Ebrington St in Plymouth.

Even dimmer recollection of the whole family, including Grandparents, Uncle, Uncles girlfriend, Mother, Dad to be, living in a couple of rooms then the whole floor, then eventually the whole house.

I remember patchworking with my mum and grandmother. I remember leaning against the speakers listening to this in a room full of plants and 70’s nic nacs.

And I remember amazing orange wallpaper in the bathroom.

This is probably my mothers record.
